“Lord, we thank you that today we get to gather together with freedom…independence, O God, from the threat of tyranny or violence against us, because we are Christ followers” John Serio, pastor of Springs Journey Church, the closest church to the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood.
This is part of the first prayer during the church service today. I have a question for Mr. Serio: Are babies in the womb free from tyranny and violence?
Shortly before praying that, he saw pictures of aborted babies, and was reminded that 60 million Americans have been murdered without receiving justice. At that same time, he threatened to call the police on us for standing on the public sidewalk with signs. He also sent a bogus cease and desist letter (on the church letterhead) threatening to sue my friend for his free speech activity.
I guess we can’t really expect him to have learned about freedom of speech, since that’s the 8743rd amendment…Oh wait, freedom of speech is in the first amendment. Never mind. He’s obviously never done any sort of street evangelism.
The purpose of AHA’s Church Repent project is to get Christians to believe that babies really are being murdered, and start acting like it. I don’t know what action that leads to, but continuing to spread government propaganda about how free we are isn’t helping the unborn. Saying that this country is free from violence and tyranny when babies are being slaughtered less than a mile from his church shows a heinous lack of love for his neighbor.
The blood of helpless babies is being shed, and Serio is helping to keep it hidden when he prays such falsehoods to God in front of his congregation. If there has ever been a church that needed to repent, to start acting like babies are really being murdered, Springs Journey Church is it.
